    Since the big bike and leg armor is packed away...[o]

    I rode without it today, someplace that normally it is worn. Oops. Price check on aisle 3, deep new leg scars on sale?


    Actually, I've ridden around this place a couple times in the last week. (some of the photos from other spots though)


    It's a nice spot. Lots of wildlife about.





    (okay, well not really. that big sucka' was hanging out by the garage.)



    Fall is here/coming/near/whatever. Not quite full on peeping season around us yet though.


    Dang, ya don't see that one often.


    Ran into a couple other riders there Sunday, and did some laps together.


    I found my usual collection of detritus amongst the roots and rocks.

    Now that's better.


    Re-checked out another place last week. Good, burly ass terrain with lots of fun bits up and down. My skills were not quite up to a few spots. Yes, the trail goes up the rocks vie a slight notch just past my front wheel.


    Yep, still mostly green.


    White picket fences FTW. I have no idea how or why they are here. A buch of them stuck in trailside, along a section that doesn't exactly get a ton of traffic.


    Metacomet trail love.


    The start of an excellent, but short descent line. Me likey.


    A little macro palette cleanser.


    And a beer break time.


    Aaaaand we're back to action of today.


    Log on.

    Ah, much better. Your post was a nice antidote to the silly posts and lack of activity on the forum.

    Yeah, this place has really been slow lately. Theres not even that many "What bike" Threads anymore.

    Btw scrubylover, great pictures of course. You have great places to ride there.
    Did you just kick my tire?! I hope you didn't just kick my tire!

    Thanks.

    Hijcack: (can one do that in their own thread? i digress...) I tried a little Columbian place for lunch last week. Arepas con queso, arepas con chorizo, and carne empanadas to die for. Filled me up post ride quite handily. Cost? $4.50US. I left them a fat tip. There is a a little fried chicken/fish place down the road that is pretty good as well. Best part: the Iranian guy who owns it has a little Iranian side menu action going on as well. Had a curried mutton stew with sesame naan that was outtasight!

    Oh yeah, I love empanadas in particular. They are a great portable snack or lunch. I buy my empanadas from a Chilean place here in town. Delicious. My mom makes empanadas as well but not often enough for my tastes.

    The Iranian place sounds good. A guy I work with is Iranian and he keeps telling me that we have to go to a good Iranian place for lunch one of these days. I'll probably be hitting a local Korean BBQ place soon for lunch as well.

    I'm getting hungry.

    A good word as well, but flotsam is water born debris.

    Yes. Done. A nice big strip.

    Moab/Junction/Fruita Oct. 14th-22nd. Anniversary with the wifey. Built the trip around her running the Moab Other Half Marathon, and us probably tying the knot (officially) in Grand Junction.
    What used to be a half day drive now involves a plane, rental car and condo, and shipping a bike out.

    So, how about jetsam?

    Trip to Moab/GJ/Fruita, huh? You dog! (as in lucky). One of my favorite areas in the universe. Been there (Moab/Utah/Ariz./NM/Colo/Nev./Idaho/Ore.) last three years in a row for a month in Oct. each time. Road trip w/ the GF and our MTB's and road bikes. Solid month of riding is my idea of died and gone to heaven. Not this year, tho. Building industry slowdown killed those plans.

    Perfect time of the year for your trip there. Make sure you put up photo documentation for us! No doubt you will. Have a ball.

    Also nautical and doubly not appropriate: jetsam is what was purposely jetisoned (hence jetsam) overboard to lighten the ship's load and lessen its draft. Flotsam is floating (hence flotsam) debris accidentally spilled overboard due to high seas, etc. Since most trailside debris that Scrub shows us is given up inadvertently, and since it happens on dry (err, well . . . damp sometimes) land, neither term is appropriate.
